members of staff. The overall aim is to enhance students’ interests in migration by exploring selected issues such as theories of migration, social integration, labour market, citizenship and rights and migration and sex work. It takes an international perspective by including cultural specificity and variation as well as the global concerns and policy into migration issues.
Throughout the module, we will explore how we gain an understanding of migration; how migrants are represented and treated by the media, policy and society; how migrants view and experience their lives; and what kinds of inequality and power relationships exist between host society and migrant workers.
The module will encourage students to embrace various sociological approaches to the interpretation of migration and to critically examine related discourses and policies in order to develop a thorough review of the literature on the subject.
